One of my favorite dishes that my mom used to make me as a kid were breaded chicken cutlets. There’s something about the simplicity of this dish, that when eaten, I feel like I am 7 all over again. These are super simple to make and can be eaten as chicken fingers or combined to make one of my favorite sandwiches.

For the sandwich: pile your chicken cutlets onto a Deli Hero, top with some Pastrami, and Smoked Mozzarella. Put in the oven at 350 just to melt the cheese, then top with pickles, Tomato slices and a little bit of Mayo.
